SciSpace invites applications for one programmer position at NASA-Goddard Institute for Space Studies (NASA GISS) to assist in remote sensing and crop modeling for seasonal yield forecasting. Tasks will include the processing of remote sensing, crop model, and weather model data and their combination within data assimilation and forecasting systems. Information about GISS can be found www.giss.nasa.gov.
The agronomic forecasting lab (aka The Dokoohaki Lab - http://www.dokoolab.com) at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, seeks a PhD student with degrees in agronomy, statistics, computer science or related fields. The successful candidate will work on a cutting-edge program for developing a new generation of crop yield monitoring systems. Projects focus on the use of Bayesian statistical methods for fusing satellite images and soil/crop sensors into process-based crop models.
